My pleasure (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/coffee.gif)

Some years ago I was alerted to this car by another club member - it was sat outside, rather unloved, but a bit too far away to view by me (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

This other member was looking for an Isis, so went to view, and reported that although it was complete it needed a complete restoration which he wasn't keen on. He was told that it was the Motor Show car (but I've not been able to verify that as yet), and the trail went cold for a while. Moving on, the car came up at a farm sale (couldn't go (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/angry.gif) ) and was bought by a 'trader' who advertised it on eBay a couple of times with little interest - the interior was rather shabby, one bumper was damaged I think, bodywork was a bit moth eaten although it did run. We conversed about it's history, as to be fair the vendor didn't know what he had, and eventually the current owner stepped in to save it (I think I offered £300 for it (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif) )

Karl (current vendor) is a very talented 'body man', who has done exactly what he said he would - complete strip to bare shell, welding, painted everywhere, retrimmed etc etc (he has lots of experience). I supplied him with quite a few parts along the way, and some info of course - it now looks magnificent; it should have been at the Morris Centenary last weekend but a technical problem forced him to abandon his trip so I haven't seen it in the flesh - I think it's a good price considering the effort put in.

And this was about year ago I think - a pretty thorough job all round. Respect!

Fully done turn key car like that with 6 cylinder to boot is a bargain. The cost of resto's is so high now. I have three projects on the go right now I will never see my money back. Lucky these are cars I do not want to sell. But I would buy restored now as its just cheaper. I like the work but the cost is killing me now. Don't get me started on chrome 5K per car.

Wow! True bare-metal resto. Phew!
I love to see nice metal work being done - the bottom of that door looks great (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) Gives me some hope for the future with metal work. Having said that, my cars are all quite nice still...

As mentioned: a beautifully presented 'turn-key' car with nothing needing to be done.

Currently on ebay.co.uk with no reserve - currently at ukp5500 - a bargain for such a beautifully restored car!

Here's a chance for someone to join the distinguished ranks of Isis owners with a top notch vehicles (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/coffee.gif)
